Italian Nationalist Leader Pledges “New Europe” After Wave of Populist Victories

Matteo Salvini, Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the nationalist ‘Lega’ Party, struck a triumphant tone on Sunday after a wave of populist and right-wing victories across Europe in European Parliament elections.

Salvini’s party came in first place in Italy, securing around 34% of the vote and far outpacing traditional center-right parties and its left-populist governing partner. Right-wing populist and euroskeptic parties also won big in major EU member states such as France, where Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party triumphed over incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party.

The UK’s Brexit Party, which participated in the EU election on account of Britain’s ongoing membership in the globalist political union despite a 2016 national referendum in which the British public voted to leave the group, won big, representing a renewed call for the nation to exit the EU after Tory Prime Minister Theresa May’s embarrassing failure to deliver on Brexit.

Salvini has shown himself as one of the boldest among a new generation of nationalists, willing to directly challenge the neoliberal hegemony of multinational corporations, big banks and corrupt oligarchs that have dominated moribund institutions such as the European Parliament for decade.

Salvini was followed in his celebration of Sunday’s populist victories by Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban. Orban’s Fidesz Party won in Hungary with a whopping 52% majority, and the nationalist leader pledged to work with any political party with a presence in the European Union that would fight to stop mass immigration.

Nationalist leaders such as Salvini and Orban differ from Euroskeptic movements in nations such as Britain in seeking to reform the EU as a voluntary union of peoples and nations respecting and promoting national sovereignty. With the populist presence in the European Parliament greater than ever before, they could be a step closer to realizing their vision of radical change for the antiquated bureaucracy.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger

A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.

Published

on

Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.

Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.

The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.

Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.

If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.

Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.

Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
